SOT Events, Edition XV

Guardians of the Future .

Throughout its 22 years of hosting SOT events, Beaconhouse has advocated for the rights of children and young people to be active participants in their learning and be viewed as guardians of the future: the next generations of mentors and leaders within their families, communities, and nations. Our latest SOT Event brings this focus to life while also celebrating the upcoming World Children’s Day (on 20 November), marked annually since 1954 to promote international togetherness and awareness among children of all faiths and backgrounds to celebrate their rights and translate their aspirations into building a better world for themselves and future generations.

Conference Dimensions .


A Balanced Future

According to a recent comprehensive study, global warming has already bled Antarctica, which is larger than Europe, of about 2.7 trillion tons of ice. This enormous amount of ice has already raised global sea levels by as much as a centimeter (Meyer, 2018). Massive deforestation still occurs in the Amazon Basin, and across large swathes of Sub-Saharan Africa, Indonesia, Malaysia and West Papua.


An Inclusive Future

Differences based on race, colour, religion, creed, socio-economic class, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, gender and related issues have been politicised in the ideological narratives of many societies. A genuine commitment to a just and inclusive world should identify and call out examples of oppression, racism and bigotry.


An Expressive Future

Our world would be unimaginable if not for the philosophers, artists and musicians who have upturned the debate on what constitutes society, culture, expressive arts and valued social behavior. This realignment has shaped our moral compasses from that of considerations based purely on religion and ethnicity and the expected norms of a society to a movement within popular culture that has re-shaped our minds and our behavior (ACLU, 2020).


A Peaceful Future

Given the rise in global conflicts, economic instability, geopolitical rivalry of world powers, and the widening gap between the developed and developing worlds, it is now more important than ever to carve a pathway to uphold human rights, ensuring peace and security for a fairer, harmonious and prosperous world for future generations.


An Unknown Future

Scientific and technological advances in recent decades have greatly improved our capacity to predict and protect ourselves from many natural and man-made disasters. Yet, we remain extremely vulnerable both to natural elements and to the unpredictability of scientific advancements created through humanity’s hubris.
